DSA 1841-2: New git-core packages fix build failure
Posted on: 01/31/2010 02:40 PM

The Debian Security Team published a new security update for Debian GNU/Linux. Here the announcement:

Debian Security Advisory DSA-1841-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
January 31, 2010 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : git-core
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug : 532935
CVE ID : CVE-2009-2108

A bug in git-core caused the security update in DSA 1841 to fail to
build on a number of architectures Debian supports. This update corrects
the bug and releases builds for all supported architectures. The original
advisory is quoted in full below for reference.

It was discovered that git-daemon which is part of git-core, a popular
distributed revision control system, is vulnerable to denial of service
attacks caused by a programming mistake in handling requests containing
extra unrecognized arguments which results in an infinite loop. While
this is no problem for the daemon itself as every request will spawn a
new git-daemon instance, this still results in a very high CPU consumption
and might lead to denial of service conditions.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.4.4-4+etch4.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.6.5-3+lenny3.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.6.3.3-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:1.6.3.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your git-core packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
